Star Trek: Enterprise is a science fiction television series that first premiered on UPN in 2001, with its final episode airing in 2005. The show tells the story of the first deep space exploration vessel of the United Earth's Starfleet - the Enterprise - and its crew in the 22nd century.

The show is set 100 years prior to the events of the original Star Trek series, showcasing the earth's first tentative steps towards reliable space travel, and initiating humanity's entrance into the United Federation of Planets that had been established by the time of the original series. The series follows Captain Jonathan Archer (portrayed by Scott Bakula), and his crew as they encounter various new races, cultures and technological advancements while travelling through unchartered space.

The Enterprise crew is a diverse group of individuals, from Archer and his dog Porthos, to the Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Phlox (played by John Billingsley), a Denobulan with a peculiar bedside manner, that tends to sometimes rub the other crewmates the wrong way. The show also stars Jolene Blalock as T'Pol, a Vulcan first officer, who is sent on the Enterprise to observe human activity in order to report back to Vulcan's High Command. T'Pol's presence on the ship generates a lot of tension with some of the crewmembers, in part due to the species' differing viewpoints and customs.

Another prominent crewmember is Chief Engineer Trip Tucker (portrayed by Connor Trinneer), a highly skilled engineer with a Southern accent, who is also Archer's best friend. They work closely together to resolve the ship's numerous mechanical issues as they travel through the unknown parts of space. The crew also includes communications officer Hoshi Sato (played by Linda Park), helmsman Travis Mayweather (Anthony Montgomery), and tactical officer Malcolm Reed (Dominic Keating), whose position on the bridge draws comparisons to the original series' Mr. Sulu.

One of the key themes of the show is humanity's struggle to establish its footing in space while also dealing with cultural differences encountered on their journey. The series features a range of species, with the crew often facing resistance from some of the more dominant extraterrestrial races. But the show also focuses on the crew's willingness to learn more about the alien societies they encounter and to establish peaceful and constructive relationships with these new species.

Another important aspect of the show is the use of temporal cold war as a plot device throughout the series. This cold war involves a temporal war between two factions, one from the 31st century and another unknown faction, manipulating history in order to assure their superiority in the future. The Enterprise's crew must figure out how to balance exploring the mysteries of deep space with the potential catastrophic consequences of time manipulation.

Star Trek: Enterprise gradually developed a devoted fan base with its engaging storylines, impressive special effects, and well-crafted writing. The show's intriguing plotlines explore the deeper ethical issues at play in space exploration and human interaction with other species. The performances by the capable cast draw the audience into the story, and they genuinely start to care about the fate of the crew and their missions.

However, despite its strong following, Star Trek: Enterprise was canceled after four seasons due to declining ratings. Nevertheless, it continued to attract new viewers with regular reruns and availability on streaming services. The show catered to both long-time fans and newcomers to the Star Trek universe, providing an entertaining and thought-provoking approach to space exploration, while offering a unique look into the origins of the beloved sci-fi franchise.

Star Trek: Enterprise is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (100 episodes). The series first aired on September 26, 2001.

Unfortunately for Archer and his traveling companions, V'Las is going to extremes to thwart any interference they may cause in carrying out his battle strategy.

Archer, who has been feeling strangely since Syrran mind-melded with him, is having visions of Surak, and realizes that the notions of katra must be true. Further, while T'Pau tries to extract the katra from Archer through another type of mind-meld, Surak resists, staying firmly planted in Archer's consciousness.

In trying to protect Vulcans, Surak believes that Archer is his best recourse in saving his race.
